3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange gold, not too bright, small white fizzy head, poor retention. Lots of sweet fruity wine barrel in the aroma, white grape juice, moderate funk, mild lactic note. Mild pucker, sweet and sour, the oak dries things out a bit, wood and lactic sour in the finish. Light feel, a bit fizzy.
